Overview

Garmsar and The Salt Cave Tour

The idea of a day trip to Garmsar is one of those journeys that will undoubtedly exceed all your expectations. The region is filled with natural wonders, salt mines, colorful rocky mountains and the so-called Martian hills which are on top of the list of sights in Garmsar. The silk road passes through this region, which means there is also tons of history laying underneath these grounds.

We start our trip from Tehran. After having the breakfast and visiting the colorful mountains on the way, we arrive at the salt mines of Garmsar which are basically caves made out of salt. When you enter these caves, the color tints on salts are the first thing that will catch your eyes. When you breathe in, you can easily notice that your lungs are enjoying the pure, fresh air. It is said that the salt layers in the cave work as a natural filter for the air coming inside the cave, creating a unique atmosphere with a pleasant temperature. In fact, there are people with breathing problems who would come to these salt mines just for one reason: taking in some fresh air.

Another highlight of this tour is the historic village of Padeh(Tehran Tour). We will walk through the historical texture of the village where we will also visit the remaining of the old castle, the historic bathhouse (hammam), and the ice house of this desert village.

We will also go to the Garmsar city itself where we visit the historic water reservoir of Garmsar. This day will be packed with visiting numerous sights, thus to regain some energy, we will also make some grilled potatoes along with a cup of smoked tea on fire (known as “Chai Atishi”) which is certainly the favorite way of preparing tea for many Iranians.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

Walking around the salt cave was like meditation. The whole team was super. It made us feel safe and secure the entire time! I recommend anyone to go with them.
